Around Me…

so much happening while I stay home, avoiding the Corona Virus! In the background, the news drones on while elsewhere the death toll rises.

 

August whirlwinds drift
above farmer’s black tilled fields
-distant church bells toll

Prairie birds don’t heed the sounds
they’re just like the clouds above
